I think Autumn deserves a new look!!!10:28 AM
I know you're probably laughing, I tend to change my template a lot around here, I think having the advantage of knowing how to do it tends to make me mess with it whenever the mood strikes me.
I do like this one for Fall, the colors, the changing leaves, the pumpkins, just makes me want to grab the family and head for the nearest Pumpkin patch. I remember when we went last year, still back in Idaho, what a blast we had.
With it also comes the eagerness to craft my little butt off, I have so many ideas for decorations and Halloween, let's not forget that we're also but a mere less than 3 months away from Christmas........boy time really has flown by.
Whatever I DO decide to make, I'll be sure to take pictures to share with you all.
So last night we headed to Cracker Barrel for dinner, it's one of our favorites restaurants, it's cheap and the food is amazing. I had the Country Fried Steak, Curt had the Roast Beef dinner, Jasmine had pancakes (don't ask LOL) and Nicholas had the Macaroni and Cheese. It was great but of course we can't ever just walk out, seriously, I think they need to offer blinders there so that you can make it from the table to your car without stopping to oooohhhhh and aaaahhhhhh at all the goodies in the store.
The kids got a few little toys, we picked up some old fashioned bottle root beer and then I got 3 new Gooseberry Patch cookbooks and I'm in LOVE with them.....I haven't even made it through my first one "Autumn in the Country", there's so many good recipes, tips and ideas etc....I'm in heaven!
Then I also picked up "From Grandma's Kitchen" and "Come on Over"......yep HEAVEN I TELL YOU!!!!
Gooseberry Patch has become my favorite store, I could do some major damage there LOL
How beautiful is this Crocheted Throw??? Oh if only I could crochet. My poor grandma tried so hard to teach me but I just could never get it, now knitting, I'm good at, sewing great too, cooking just love, but crochet?!?!?!? I just don't get it, I end up making this huge link chain LOL
That's all that comes out of my projects, just a link chain....I might be able to turn it into a necklace I guess.....
I worked a little too hard this weekend, was cleaning and cleaning and ended up pulling a muscle on my back, so I've been kinda slow and putting off anything that requires moving too much which pretty much rules out ANYTHING LOL
It's frustrating, I see the laundry piling up and the floors needing to be sweeped again, thanks to my shedding pugs, and I can't do it.....oh well, there's always tomorrow right???
Anyway, I need to get going, I have the best smell permeating the air.......Swiss Steak cooking away in my crockpot, I can't wait for dinner and it's not even noon. Better go find something to eat right now.
